Helena was not present, but she made sure that someone else handle the logistics. It was a short stay and I was satisfied with the room.
The place is really pleasant, and perfectly located in Koregaon Park. There are a variety of restaurants a few minutes by foot from the place, it´s quiet, and very nice.
A last minute booking that turned out to be a very comfortable stay. Beautiful location and a quirky room. Helena was extremely forthcoming and helpful, and we also ended up having a very interesting conversation before leaving. Will definitely stay again.
Staying at Helena's place was very nice. It is a great location in Pune with German bakery, Yogi hotel and Starbucks nearby.
The place is not too fancy, but well kept and clean. Although I couldn't interact a lot with Helena during the stay, she took out time to explain everything to me on the first day itself.
It was a good stay at Helena's place. The location of the house is in quiet, peaceful and green place of Koregaon Park. The owner was helpful and friendly. There are lot of Osho's magazine in the room which you can read if you want. Shower room is okay. Proximity to famous German Bakery is a big plus. Apart from that there are many speciality restaurants. Osho's meditation center is also near.
All in all, it was a good experience for me. I would love to stay there if I ever come to Pune in future.
It started off very confusing and chaotic with our room apparently being booked by someone else (how can that happen when I booked and paid in advance?! And we only found out via email one hour before we arrived in Pune) and waiting for 2 hours to be met (in the dark and cold after having just arrived with the night bus not knowing anything, despite arrangements being made in advance). But the room was comfy and Rekha aka Bobby (Helena's assistant who looks after all of her rental rooms) did everything to help us around (including getting us out of rip-off rickshaw drivers and making us masala chai every evening). She is an absolute star and showed great hospitality and was super-friendly at all times!
The location is absolute ace: bang on in Koregaon Park next to great places to eat and safely wander around at night but surprisingly quiet at night at the same time.
It should be said though that you have to pay 500 rupees for each c-form to be filled out for your stay (something I assumed is included in the room rate but turns out is an extra cost). Also, we "lost" 2 pairs of pants and 2 pairs of socks in the (free) laundry, so careful there ;)
The other guests in the flat were nice, too, but don't expect silence throughout the day as there is an almost constant hustle and bustle in the flat (which I personally found quite charming once I caught up on sleep).
The "host" as such or rather the owner (Helena) emailed me 9 hours before my arrival (9am) informing me that current guests had decided to stay longer and therefore she would find me somewhere else to stay. I felt this was a bit late in the day but was comforted she would source another room somewhere. As it turned out there was no such situation and for the first two nights I was the only guest.? Helena has a housekeeper, a real host whose nickname is Bobby. And she welcomed me, cooked for me took me shopping came out to help me get a phone and argued for me when I was ripped off. She is a true soldier and a wonderful host. She tries so hard to help and please the guests and her "boss".
The flat is as described and was for me a base to stay overnight at while visiting OSHO's.
On day three Helena arrived with two female guests who I spent some time with, made a connection and this I am grateful.
